Thread: It is gonna be a cold winter.

  1. #301
    Not super warm today. We had a bad storm last night and it cooled things down. The sun came out long enough for me to break a sweat at the car wash but it clouded up and started raining again when I got home. Luckily, I took the ferns off the porch to clean and they got some water. They were looking kind of sad but I always forget to water them. Seriously, my front porch is where ferns go to die.

    I love free eggs. In return, I will bring you some sun ripened peaches. You can give Danke a peach if you feel bad about overcharging him or you can just keep them and have Mrs O make you a cobbler.

    “Oh, my sweet summer child," Old Nan said quietly, "what do you know of fear? Fear is for the winter, my little lord, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep and the ice wind comes howling out of the north. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides its face for years at a time, and little children are born and live and die all in darkness while the direwolves grow gaunt and hungry, and the white walkers move through the woods”

    Going to pick up a new chainsaw here in the next week or so , scorched the piston in this one , somehow , dirt got in there .

    Old ladies in the village down the way are already spreading rumors that it is to be a bad winter . Meh , they have no way of knowing that . One thing is certain , if the precipitation does not slow way down , there will be feet and feet of snow . Probably record rainfall at my place the past two July's and this Aug too .

    I'm not too worried. I just bought 2050 gallons of propane at 1.09 a gallon. I should be good to go for a cold winter.

    Yes, there was a propane shortage, because the farmers had to dry some beans and used up more than expected.
    I just found out, I can buy as much as I want at the summer prices and the propane company will store it for me and deliver it as I need it. That should save me a lot of money should there be a shortage again.

    I always locked up my price in the summer . I always figured it will only go up once it gets cold .

    I don't know what kind of wood to get this year. It's been getting chilly at night here. And in the morning. I enjoy the Fall season. In fact, it's my favorit time of year. But the recent chill reminded me of wood.

    I'm thinking cherry this time.

    Sounds like a little bit of work you have there, oyarde. You splitting it by hand or a splitter? Actually, I guess you end up doing both, Heh. That's something that I always enjoyed doing. Especially in the colder season. Something about the cooler season makes coffee in the morning much more enjoyable.

    I have a wood splitter now , got my first one about 4 yrs ago , it was used and very, very old , hand made , I still have it but I cannot get parts for the starter /assembly/clutch on the motor anymore ( which I usually had to rebuild every year), it is an old Briggs industrial with a cast iron bore . I need to find one like it that I can cannibilize , I did not want to just put a new motor on it . I bought a new one last fall , it is a joy to use .

    Go to harborfreight.com and get yourself a 212cc Predator engine for $99. I am not a big fan of Harbor Freight, but these engines are well worth the money. I put one on my 40 year old Horse tiller and it has been superb.

    Prior, I rebuilt the original Kohler mill. New rings, honed the bore, ground the valves/seats and cut the tappet clearances to spec, rebuilt the carb to better-than-new. It ran beautifully... that is, until the governor went stupid. It over-sped and tossed the rod. Never again. I went to H-F here in Cross Lanes and picked up a Predator engine for $99. That was three years ago and it has been excellent, much to my surprise. I'd feared it would have been crap. I was wrong. Very wrong. It also have considerably more balls than the Kohler, whose engines I do not particularly like. Seriously D00d, don't waste your time on trying to get old $#@! running.
    Through lives and lives shalt thou pay, O' king.

    Freedom will be stolen from you in a heartbeat if you do not behave as a wild and ravening beast pursuant to its protection.

    "Government" is naught but a mental construct, a script to which people meekly accept and play out their assigned roles by those with no authority to dictate such.

    Pray for reset.
